Gustavo Henrique Had To Be Substituted After Testicle Injury
Flamengo defender Gustavo Henrique had to be substituted during the game against Corinthians after suffering a quite horrific injury.
Henrique was replaced in the first half after an accidental collision with an opponent ended up with his crotch being stepped on.
The 27-year-old initially left the pitch to have his shorts replaced, after bleeding through his original pair, but did return to continue playing.
However, just six minutes before half time, manager Domenec Torrent had to sub the player off because the pain was too much to play through.
Reports say that the bleeding did stop and his condition was being monitored by medical staff after Sunday's incident.

Gabriel Noga replaced Henrique after the incident and Flamengo, who were 1-0 up when the defender was still on the pitch, went on to win the game.
Everton Ribeiro put them 1-0 up in the 32nd minute before goals from Vitinho and Nathan early in the second half put them 3-0 ahead.
Gil pulled one back for the home side before Bruno Henrique and Diego rounded off the 5-1 hammering by Corinthians, which will come as little relief to their injured centre back.#
